  • 1 small head of cauliflower chopped into small florets
  • 2 jalapeno peppers seeds removed, cut in half
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • pinch of pepper
  • butter to spread on bread
  • 4 slices bread
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Mix cauliflower, jalapeno peppers, olive oil, salt and pepper on baking sheet until cauliflower and peppers are fully coated. Bake for 8 minutes, careful not to burn it. Remove from oven.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium high heat.
  • Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread. Put 2 pieces of bread on skillet, butter side down.
  • On top of the slices of bread in skillet layer cheese, cauliflower, jalapeno peppers and more cheese. Be sure to evenly distribute the cheese. Top each with the other piece of bread, making it a sandwich.
  • Once bottom side of sandwich is browned, carefully flip to the other side with a spatula. I find it helpful to use 2 spatulas to keep the sandwiches together. Now brown the other side and cook until cheese is fully melted. This takes about 7-8 minutes per sandwich.
